AEW fired CM Punk after his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In London. Many fans wondered what his next steps will be, but it appears they will not be in a courtroom.
According to a report from Haus of Wrestling, CM Punk has no intention of pursuing any legal action against All Elite Wrestling or Tony Khan following his recent termination from AEW earlier this month. The report also suggests that Punk is relieved to be free from the constant “day-to-day drama” that surrounded him during his time at AEW.
It remains unclear whether AEW or Tony Khan are considering any legal action against Punk. The report indicates that things seem quiet between both parties at the moment.
CM Punk recently returned to MMA broadcast commentary at CFFC 125. During the broadcast, when the idea of a post-fight show was mentioned, Punk mentioned that he would have “some time on my hands for the next two months.” This has led to speculation among fans about Punk’s potential freedom from any AEW obligations around that time and the possibility of a WWE return.
AEW fired CM Punk “with cause” from his contracts, and they had to rework a few things. Tony Khan announced CM Punk’s termination from AEW before the AEW Collision show in Chicago on September 2nd, following a backstage altercation at AEW All In London on August 27th at Wembley Stadium, which marked Punk’s final appearance for the company as he defeated Samoa Joe during the pay-per-view event.
